Grounding Locknuts

Bridgeport now offers Grounding Locknuts from 3/4” to 4” Trade Sizes. These locknuts are ETL Listed for use with all of Bridgeport Fittings’ EMT and Rigid connectors, as well as threaded Rigid/IMC conduit. Bridgeport’s grounding locknuts provide a secure connection to the enclosure, and three tapped holes for proper placement of the ground lug. When thread length is limited, these can be used in place of a grounding bushing and standard locknut. Simply remove the standard locknut and thread on the grounding locknut. Bridgeport’s locknuts are also suitable for Service Entrance Equipment.
